How thin is too thin? If your answer to that question is that it's impossible to be "too thin" in the first place, then this selection of paper-thin splash cymbals is probably the right place for you to find your next effect cymbal. The thinner the cymbal, the faster the attack and decay, which means the quicker you can play and the more control you have over your sound. And since this is the thinnest weight category there is, it's safe to say that when you want something incredibly nimble, you should look for it here. In the recording room, they're second-to-none. And with the right mic setup, there's no hard limit to what they can do onstage, either.

There are plenty of paper-thin splash cymbals to choose from, so the first step in browsing this section is just figuring out where to start. On that front, how about checking out an award winner? The Sabian AAX Air Splash Cymbal took the crown in the 2012 Cymbal Vote, thanks to its sweet combination of washy and cutting qualities. It's also a versatile cymbal that comes in 8" or 10", as well as a brilliant version if that's how you like 'em. But maybe you're a "loyalist" to the Zildjian side of the family rivalry - in that case, the Zildjian A Series Flash Splash Cymbal and the Zildjian K Custom Dark Splash are just two suggestions to get you on your way.

Of course, there's no reason to tie yourself to just two brands, and you'll find some outstanding paper-thin splash cymbals from other makers as well, such as the Meinl Candela Series Percussion Splash. Choosing the best cymbal for your setup and your sound is about more than the ink that's stamped on top, after all: it's a matter of tracking down that elusive perfect sound, and if you're a fan of speed and control, you're definitely on the right track in this lineup of paper-thin splashes.
